New York Giants draft: 10 players Joe Schoen, Brian Daboll should target
By Reese Nasser
Kyle Hamilton, S Notre Dame
Kyle Hamilton is regarded as arguably not only the best player in this class, but also the best safety prospect that the NFL has seen in some time. At 6-4 and 220 pounds, Hamilton has elite size at the safety position. He also has speed that allows him to cover a large body of the field.
The New York Giants could potentially have a hole in their secondary, especially with the expected absence of Jabril Peppers, who could leave in free agency. A pairing of Hamilton and Xavier McKinney could be something that intrigues this Giants front office.
While Hamilton has risen to his promise as a safety, he has also spent significant time in the slot. The flexibility that could come with having someone like him on your secondary could be too much to pass up on.
Over his three seasons at Notre Dame, Hamilton was targeted just 82 times. He allowed just 39 receptions while playing 856 snaps in coverage. He also intercepted eight passes and defended another 16.
His ability to come in and make an impact from day one could make Hamiltoin a perfect fit for Brian Daboll and the Giants.
